Only because I was there, I need to correct this mis-statement. The first
radio station to simulcast was WXYC, the student station of the University
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. We managed to beat the KU station by a
couple weeks. More info on that historic moment at

It's important to me because it was a hell of a lot of work, not to
mention the concern about the legal issues that forced us into a whole
boatload of legal research that was largely unprecedented.
